Each spring, WRAL and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill welcome a dozen student journalists from across the country to participate in an intensive program to prepare them for future broadcast media careers.

Professors and professionals from UNC's School of Journalism and Mass Communication and Capitol Broadcasting Company's WRAL-TV and WRAL.com team up to lead workshops about real careers in the broadcast news industry.

The young journalists collaborate in groups and individually to craft stories. They also enjoy résumé/reel critiques and the production of their own newscast.

The journalists-in-training write stories that are posted to WRAL.com and mated with the on-air report that the students researched and produced for their fellowship newscast.
